So lets start with my goal updates. Sorry that it took me a while to get this up. There isn't too much to tell. I did invest in a GED prep book which honestly has boosted my confidence quite a bit. I thought that I was going to get this book and not understand a single things inside it. But so far everything is like an easy refresher course. The book itself is pretty intimidating in size I will admit I picked it up and was like "omg what the crap?".
It is very easy to follow and so far I am happy with my choice. All the sites I looked on before purchasing this book gave great reviews. I did read one though that this book is a little old and not meant for the new and improved G.E.D. Test which started January 2014. I tried to find another prep book that would follow the new test but I couldn't find anything. Plus I am thinking that while the format of the testing could very well have changed drastically the actual learning material should still relatively be within the same realm right? I mean no matter where you go Math is Math and that sort of thing, right?
So far I have only taken one of the prep test which was in language arts which I am sort of kicking myself for because I feel like by now I should have done more. But I scored 20/25 which isn't that bad. The pre tests in this book are half length to the actual test. At least what the test used to be. Again I am still not convinced that this book wasn't a good purchase just because it is a little out of date. The one bad comment and she didn't even say anything else other than it was old. I did attempt to start the essay which in itself seemed easy enough. I don't really want to write to much on it here because then I feel like I will in a sense be cheating some how lol. Anyways...
Other than that I have been working out gradually. A lot of walking, some pool time, and some at home work outs. I haven't worked out the last three days because I have been sick. I woke up with a sore throat and it hasn't gone away. My nose is a bit stuff as well. Oh and I did dedicate some time to drawing. Nothing crazy just a tattoo design but it felt nice. So yeah that is about it for the goal updates.
So for the big news that I have drug out for quite some time now. We are moving!!!
Like moving moving. Cross country moving. I won't say exactly where but it is to the east coast. I am very excited as well as super nervous. This will be the biggest move I have ever made my whole life. Plus it is going to be away from a lot of my family. I am going to miss them but this is something that I want to do and feels right. Plus I have had plenty of time to sit and contemplate if this is something I want. It has been a plan long in the making for anyone who remembered my comments last year about this new year bringing big change. Well this is definitely part of it. So I will definitely keep you all up to date on how things will be going. My bf is going out there before me to make things a bit easier. It will give me about two months to spend time with family before I go which I think will be nice. Then it is Hello East Coast! I have a feeling this desert girl isn't nearly prepared for the cold weather, snow, and humidity that is going to be out there. It will be an exciting new adventure though. I am starting to get a little anxious as the bf is leaving in less than a week. Definitely going to miss him but I think this is a smart way to do things instead of both of us going out there right away and me not taking a decent amount of time to get some quality family time in.
So there it is. Sorry it took so long for me to tell all of you. I didn't want to say anything unless it was 100% happening.
Anyways I do have to get going but here are some fun pictures I took when hanging out with some good friends playing in makeup lol.
I feel like I look like I just walked of the set of Braveheart battle scenes. FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!
Well I hope you all are having a nice weekend. Our internet is getting shut off tomorrow so I will try to get on once back with family and let all of you know how things are going.
